‘They're ruining our work’ Police warn ‘paedo-hunters' to AVOID taking law into own hands

POLICE have warned vigilante “paedophile-hunters” to stop "getting involved" in their sting operations as cases are being put in jeopardy.

Kent Police expressed their concerns “about people taking the law into their own hands".

Although the vigilante's are "well-meaning", police claimed innocent people may be potentially entrapped.

Their warning follows an incident at Bluewater Shopping Centre on Easter Sunday when a vigilante group called “The Hunted One” confronted a man suspected of grooming a teenage girl.

The confrontation ended up in a violent scuffle which the centre’s security guards were forced to break up.

    Normally I would agree with the police, that they should handle their jobs, however in these cases, many times their process & investigations are so long, their hands are tied by PC & red tape.. How many just walk free from court after the police do their job?.. even when the Pedo has ADMITTED to their crimes.

    These hunters are exposing people that should not be walking the streets, in most cases, they set up the sting and call the police before handing over the video coverage.

    If this helps save children from being harmed, 100% behind them

    Unfortunately, there are also a number of cases where these guys, or groups like them, basically make a decision on someone and it ends up not being true. Imagine for a moment what it would be like to have a group of people (often Internet fanatics) appear at the front door screaming, "PEDO! PEDO!" and putting one's face all over the Internet, when it's a case of simple mistaken identity. It's happened numerous times already.
